2nd Challenge!

Hey hey hey! :D
I promised to post the new task today, and that's what I'm doing right now ... not breaking my promise.
By the way, I still haven't announced last week's winner of the week yet. Our very first winner of this week for this cycle is .....

LoveGossip4Life!!! Congratulations Lindsey, you've won some beautiful flowers for your suite and I reserved a golden necklace for you in my starbazaar. I hope you enjoy it :)


For this week, we'll be having a photoshoot in a special location. Our destination will be the beautiful beach side of Monaco! That's where you we are having our photoshoot this week.
You know, lately I've seen some beautiful swimsuits by Chanel, Lanvin and D&G on the german Vogue homepage. And that's your task:
Create a beautiful photo at the beach of Monaco, wearing a beautiful swinsuit or bikini by an italian or french designer brand. Wether you are lying in the sand or playing around in the water, make sure that pose is sexy and easy-going. It's all about being in shape and feeling beautiful!
This photo should be a graphic. But if you find a swimsuit by a french or italian designer on Stardoll, then you can of course do a scenery if you aren't good at making graphics yet. Again, when you are done, upload your photo on imgur or tinypic and send us the link in a comment.

I really hope you like the task as I'd love to be at the beach right now, what about you??


Deadline: Tuesday, April 16th 

If you have any questions, please ask me. Good luck and stay tuned!
xoxo Rafael

Lindsey, you deserve it! :) And yeah, I agree with Cathy there! Still, this gives me an opportunity to improve and I sure as hell will give me best!

@Cathy: Omg you're right!! Sorry, I didn't read your blog lately so I didn't know anything about the task. I just realized how similar your and my tasks are when I checked out CMA right after I read your comment. :O

Aw, thank you Rafi! You are too kind ;) I'm sorry I didn't see the task sooner, my blogger dashboard is so jacked up, its sad. I thought it was a few hours behind, but turns out the blogs I follow, their updates don't show up until days later.

YOU ARE NOT FAIR WITH ALL PARTICIPANTS. THE WINNERS ARE ALWAYS IN YOUR BFF LIST?!!! WHY RAFAEL? WHY?

Manda said...

@anon: idk why you think so, but Rafael indeed is fair to all contestants.
He differs friendship from business and idk if you noticed, but not all winners are in his bff list.
They appeared after thecompetition; not meanwhile.

Don't search any arguements to display Rafael bad or make his competition sound worse and ripped off.

@ Anonym: Why don't you show your name?
I don't want to interfere this conversation, but maybe they won, because their entrys were best? Lol, sounds logically, or? :)

I did a chanel inspired bikini with pearls.
I thought of using the bubble as a prop, and in the end, I think I used it creatively. I hope you like it as much as I do :)

Manda said...

@Marylin J: In my opinion a competition is (and I would be wondered if there were participants, who doesn't know about graphics) a good possibility to improve your graphical skills or at least get into the graphical knowings.

Moreover we take consideration to those, who aren't very experienced with graphics and we don't await high quality graphics of the graphical beginners.

No, tbh, we see if someone gives her/his best in the entries and we don't only judge the graphics. We judge the idea and looks. Not only the graphical quality.

Rafael/Rafi101 said...

@Maryling J: I don't really understand what your problem is. I think that I am more than fair to all of the contestants. I want to help everyone to improve and give their best.
I think I am more than fair to those who aren't very experienced with graphics as I always gave them the opportunity to try different things, e.g. create a scenery if they are better at that than at making graphics.
Btw, what do you mean with "some talented dolls are out?"
I only eliminate a contestant if she doesn't take this competition serious and doesn't send in her task or if she doesn't improve any more.

If you still have something to complain about, then please talk with me in my guestbook or send me a friend request so we can discuss this in PRIVATE!!!

Why does only anonymous people comment such idiotic things?

@Anon at the beginning: I didn't know Rafi before I participated in RNTM cycle 4. he only added me some months after I had won because we only started talking then. Stop talking nonsense if you don't know better.
